Life is hard and if you sense an easy stretch presently, the road bends just ahead. And in the world of struggle and hurt, a maze of philosophies abound to help you deal with life. Unfortunately, most fall short of the finish line and at best, only help you limp along for a time. What do you say and how do you respond when a friend or neighbor or a coworker shares his or her crisis with you? What insight do you provide?
Instead of simply offering condolences or glib phrases, you can do something far more. The Bible asserts this amazing declaration: “His divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3). We have the sufficiency of God’s Word to help impact others for God’s glory. It alone has the eternal answers we need to not simply exist or get by, but to live victoriously.
Next month, Fellowship Baptist Church of Dublin, Ohio is hosting a conference with Dr. Bob Kellemen and Pastor Jim Stevanus. These brothers will assist you in helping hurting people, not to mention provide you with biblical tools to handle life in a God-pleasing way. Make the investment as you look to the Scriptures for answers to life’s problems. For more information, click here.
